Recently found this new (never worn) HBT with a cutter tag.  The cutter tag is located underneath the left sleeve.

Quite odd that the insignia is sewn on it. SFC and a U.S. ARMY tape, with no NAME tape.

This HBT shirt was found at an estate sale.  The owner of the residence was a WWII veteran.  My guess is that the veteran had the shirt prepared for use, but never wore it.  Also, it could be that the Army was in transition in using a different type of blouse.  I have several more new utility shirts (O.G. 107) that I acquired from the same residence.

Well believe it or not these WWII M43 HBT shirts were still issued out, and still worn by those that had them well into the 50s, this being the period after 1954 with the newly introduced U.S. ARMY tape.
